PRESENTATION: "The Future of Refrigerants: Unitary and VRF Systems"

The 2019 ASHRAE Webcast will examine the world’s most prolific air-conditioning system configurations and how those systems will adapt to worldwide regulatory restrictions and corresponding advancements in refrigerant technology.

Viewers will learn:
 * How the refrigerant industry will meet the needs of installed packaged and split system air conditioners, specifically VRF systems
 * Future trends in DX air conditioning [including VRF] equipment design, performance and application
 * Future of low-GWP refrigerant options for unitary products, if future refrigerant retrofits are possible, and how to recognize the challenges and best practices in working with flammable refrigerants.
